TENNESSEE VALLEY 



In the Tennessee Valley, our Nation has the world's most fully developed 
and regulated river system. Strategically placed dams give TVA engineers 
an almost fingertip control of the tremendous quantity of water that finds its 
way into the reservoirs, or lakes, behind the dams. 

Much in the fashion of a train dispatcher handling train movements, the 
engineers impound water or release it through turbines or spillways. 

The Tennessee Valley Authority's larger dams and steam plants are open 
to the public and visitors are cordially welcomed during visiting hours. TVA 
Public Safety Service Officers will describe points of interest. 

The visitor to TVA will be able to see giant generating units that are mak- 
ing power to strengthen the Nation. More than half of TVA's power output 
is used in national defense industries, chiefly by the Atomic Energy Commission. 
On main-stream lakes he will see large freight tows on a deep waterway now 
connected with the Nation's 9,000-mile inland waterway system. He will see 
a score of large lakes that are used for recreation by millions from many 
States. 

The TVA Information Office at Knoxville, Tennessee, makes special visit- 
ing arrangements for groups, including those interested in technical phases 
of dam and steam plant operation, or those wanting more comprehensive infor- 
mation about the overall resource development program. 

Information about State parks on TVA lakes should be obtained from 
The Tennessee Division of State Information, Department of Conservation, 
Nashville.
